Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S4 Mini, an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean smartphone that's smaller than its stablemate. The mid-range handset comes with a 4.3-inch 960 x 540 Super AMOLED display, in preference to the SGS4's Full HD 5-inch screen, but does offer S Translator and Group Play features, both of which were launched with the larger device earlier this year.
It has the Mini sports a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.5GB of RAM. The rear-facing camera is of the 8-megapixel variety, while the front is 1.9-megapixel for video calling. Storage capacity from the box is 8GB, with 5GB of that accessible to the user, and a microSD card slot allows for expansion by up to an extra 64GB.
The Dual Shot camera feature is absent, as are any of Samsung's snazzy eye control features, but there will be a 4G LTE model in the line up of Mini smartphones released globally. It will be available in white or black and informed gossip points towards a June release.
